The Gross Requirements Report application prints a selected number of levels of components for a selected quantity of a parent item or items, summarizing for each component, the total quantity required at all levels.
It offers the option of blowing through phantom items (non‑stocked, non‑controlled component items) to show the phantom item's components in place of the phantom item itself.
It also allows the operator to choose how many levels are to be printed.
The options to print active items only and purchased items only are also included.
Select Gross Requirements from the pull down BOMP Reports window. The following screen will then be displayed:
